RUSH EXCERPT:

HANSON: “Is not against the law to hold up aid. Every administration has the right to examine, cross-examine, doublethink about the aid for a couple of reasons. Maybe they thought it was corrupt. They said Ukraine could be trusted until they had verification the new president was reliable. Maybe they thought Donald Trump was too sensitive about getting aid to anybody. These are significant reasons to delay or interrupt, but the bottom line is he didn’t cut it in the end. If you’re going to convict people of thought crimes were considering cutting, what would you do if you said, well, Barack Obama never gave them legal aid and a lot of people died because of that? But we aren’t impeaching Barack Obama for that. That’s his prerogative as a president to say I’m not going to give any legal aid to the Ukrainians. I don’t care about giving them lethal aid. Republicans it and say we are impeaching the president, didn’t give him lethal aid.”
